E.P. Barrus continues expansion with new warehouse

Leading gardening tools and equipment supplier E.P. Barrus has expanded its warehouse capacity in 2019 to meet continued demand following a successful 2018. 

Due to the phenomenal success at GLEE, as well as a significant increase in sales across all its brands, including Town & Country, Wilkinson Sword, WOLF-Garten, WD40 and Energizer, the company has taken on an extra 11,000 sq ft of warehousing next to its main distribution facilities in Bicester.
The new capacity will be used to cope with the increased demand and to fully service customers until a move to a new permanent 200,000 sq ft warehouse, also in Bicester, later in 2019 and 2020.

Mark Hewett, divisional sales manager said: “Thanks to the success 2018 brought us, we have been able to reinvest and expand into this larger warehouse. As we move into 2019, we will continue focusing on the company’s future to build on our successes while still making sure we are serving our customers to the highest standard.”

With hassle-free ordering, Barrus customers have the flexibility to order a single item from across the extensive portfolio of brands. Free carriage is applied to all orders above £37.50 cost with a standard rate charged below this.

GLEE proved to be a key part of the company’s success for 2018 with a plethora of new additions being unveiled across all brands. Through rigorous research, customer feedback and investment in new innovations, an impressive 166 new products were launched.

Mark added: “The exhibition is renowned for showcasing new products, so it gave visitors the perfect chance to see and experience our large selection of new items. We had a huge amount of interest in our new Town & Country MASTERGRIP glove range as well as the Elite range of premium cutting tools from Wilkinson Sword proving to be very popular with visitors.”

E.P. Barrus is the sole distributor of the new WD40 garden range, and all gardening brands, including Wilkinson Sword, WOLF-Garten and Town & Country are available to buy through leading garden centres and retailers nationally.
